I am not sure the problem- either T-Mobile reception or really cheap phone. My wife and I experience dropped calls,no signal or weak reception constantly. Just when I think I have all 45 "drop spots" identified in my neighborhood- T-Mobile surprises me with yet another one at least once a week. T-mobil has always been good to me as a customer, but..the number of dropped calls is increasing exponentially each week!Was this review helpful to you?
Can make some calls. Need to get outside the house or next to window for bars. Sometimes no complains, sometimes I want to throw my phone against the wall.Was this review helpful to you?
I've had this service since the Airtouch days, before Verizon, it has always been great no matter where i.ve been. In Anzo Boreago, Yosemite Valley, Mission Beach, Vegas it doesn't matter. this 6255i Nokia is just the latest of many powerful Nokia phones I've had. Always works even in low signal strength areas. Maybe ten dropped calls over the past year. The Nokia phones and the Verizon service work great together.Was this review helpful to you?
I have to call from the street or from my window (right by my window). There is a canyon near by and that is probably why the reception is so bad. Even my friend who has Verizon says it is bad too, so the problem is not just Cingular.Was this review helpful to you?
It's silly really. I'm in my apartment (3rd floor, no major obstacles) and I get a decent signal. I walk down to my car and WALLAH - no signal. Strange? I don't talk and drive, so I can't comment on dropping calls. So far, I dropped one near Black Mountain Rd and Mira Mesa...Was this review helpful to you?

The entire neighborhood between Clairemont Mesa Blvd.and Tierrasanta Blvd.borders Mission Trails Regional Park. This is a 5,800 acre dead spot just east of Interstate 15. The nearest tower is 3.5 miles to the West and is seriously overtasked. There are also several ridges between here and there. Nobody can get good reception in our house. It doesn't matter what phone or what carrier. The sidewalk in front of the house has slightly better reception but 50-80% of all calls have problems. Imagine spending 15 minutes on hold with DMV only to loose the connection half way though explaining your problem. More than one innocent cell phone was "disciplined" against the wall before we realized how inadequate our coverage was.Was this review helpful to you?
Do not get good reception in home. T-Mobile was at least a two bar and the sound didn't cut in and out.Was this review helpful to you?
Terrible reception "in the shadow" of Mount Soledad. I just check on this site, and confirmed that there are no towers of any kind along my stretch of Route 5. This is odd, since we live right next to UCSD, and there is about a square mile of high density residential here. Hey Sprint!, put a tower somewhere near Route 5 and Nobel Drive.Was this review helpful to you?
There's word of a Sprint cell tower going up nearby( very close ). Does anybody know if having a cell tower( other carrier ) so close is going to effect: 1) current T-Mobile signal 2) phoneline signal 3) cable reception 4) Wifi signal 5) my 3rd eyeball ;-) Thanks.Was this review helpful to you?
